As a group of four Canadians travelling together, this is the first time we have had so many negative things to say. Embarkation went well. Ship itself was nice with excellent teen club. Cabin and Dining Service was excellent, and we ... Read more

I am utterly disappointed with Costa. Food is just HORRIBLE. Pasta is inedible - mostly soggy with awful weird sauces. We were dining at the top tier Samsara restaurant and they serve us the same yucky nonsense that they served others in ... Read more

COSTA DELIZIOSA: BALTIC CRUISE ALL GREAT PORTS BUT . . . 1. Bad food badly cooked. Absence of fresh ingredients renders all dishes bland, often breaded and undercooked, covered with glop. Even pizza and minestrone not Italian on ... Read more

Having never been on a cruise before, the decision to take Costa Deliziosa was based more on its itinerary than on the ship itself. However, the travel agent told us the ship was new, so our expectations about the ship and the places we ... Read more

We joined the cruise at Amsterdam, having made our own way there and spending a couple of days sight seeing before we embarked. Embarkation was slow and a bit haphazard, but we eventually boarded around 2.30, having arrived at 1.30. Lunch ... Read more

First let me say Savona is not an easy city to reach from the airport so if you can book a shuttle do so. Costa does not allow you to use theirs unless they book your flight. Weird customer service if you ask me but I am an American. We ... Read more

After reading the reviews on the Costa Deliziosa, we were worried that we wouldn't like it, but having already tried Royal Caribbean, Princess and Island Cruises I can honestly say Costa were far better than our previous cruises. The ship ... Read more
